This event, bought to you by Look and VIEW, was exclusively for professionals in the VI sector/working with visually impaired CYPF.

We shared our key learning points gathered from families who are worried/have questions about supporting their child’s literacy at home and discussed the best strategies and solutions for addressing family concerns.

Topics covered:

  • Helping parents stimulate their children’s interest in reading
  • Working with families whose first language is not English
  • Accessing leisure reading in accessible formats
  • Supporting pre-braille and braille skills
  • Promoting low vision skills
  • Accessible apps/ICT to promote literacy skills

The discussion was facilitated by John Rous-Milligan, Executive VIEW member along with a panel of sector experts.
